  • Please run System File Checker to see if the file can be repaired:

     

    1. Insert the Windows 7 installation DVD into the DVD-ROM; Click Exit if the auto-menu pops up.

    2. Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.

     

    If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow. 

     

    3.  At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

     

    sfc /scannow

  • Hi I have the same issue however the system came with pre- installed software and the command sfc/scannow is not recognized on its own. What can I do as the error has been forcing a restart on my system. I cannot delete reinstall or alter the file.?
